8:21 am
"viewpoint" from the gun lobbyist at the meeting yesterday, was that i should be able to sell a gun to my friends if i want. and i pointed out that's what gang members do. and i said if it saves one child's life isn't it worthed it? and he said what if it costs one child's life. and he said well if i'm worried about my daughter's life and i want to give her a gun on saturday, i can't have the background check happen until monday. and i said have your kid stay home for the weekend. >> yeah. >> but these are the arguments i'm up against, and i'm afraid we are going to see the white house cave on assault weapons, but they will proceed on background checks and high-ammunition clips. >> stephanie: yeah i got to say -- listen john i'm the biggest gun grabber liberal

8:25 am
fit that definition. >> well, it is able to be automatic or semi automatic -- >> civilians should not be able to carry weapons designed to kill people in a very short period of time. >> but it does not have fully auto -- >> and that's the gun used in the batman theater. do you defend his right to have access to that gun for his personal entertainment. >> no. >> caller: he had no criminal record. my point is when the nra can invent a gun that stops men from
